I will admit they were heading in the right direction but on that Wednesday night when they were breaking apart/getting back together, then Pension Payment became a sticking point, then Escrow Limits on the transition period came in, then the players didn't know what to do without Fehr.

Somewhere in that mess, Fehr told his neg. committee that they could get more and thats when talks broke down.

If it took that much effort to get the players 99million more in make whole(moderates selling a 10 yr CBA to the owners in exchange for it), i can't imagine what kind of effort would get the players anymore in this thing.
99M more after the players have lost half a bilion in salaries... Complete fail.
